02/5Put up current photos

Put up current photos

We know you have that one photo of yours in which you look absolutely spectacular and you like to put that up as your display picture just about everywhere. Here's what the problem with that is - it's three years old and looks nothing like you do now. You need to put up pictures of yourself that have been clicked recently so that if you meet up with the person they don't feel like they're meeting someone completely different.

Don't lie about yourself

Yes, it may not seem like a big deal if you don't mention that you're actually 28 years old but if you've written down your age as 25, then you're misleading someone and that just isn't right. Don't lie about yourself. You need to put up your qualities and just wait for that person out there who will accept you for who you are.

Make a good first impression

If you like someone, sending them a simple 'Hey' may not suffice. In fact, it might not grab their attention at all. Text them something funny or quirky and see just how fast they'll reply to you. And do make sure that there aren't any typos in your messages because that will just make you look dumb.

Don't be judgemental

If you're texting someone for the first time, the least you can do is be open to the type of person they are. You don't know them and you most certainly don't know what they've been through so keep all your judgements to yourself. Don't make any comment that may not come across well to them.
